When should you replace your door locks?
By Richard Schabb, Networx
Door locks are an important part of your house's security system.
Signs that you need to replace your locks include: Problems with inserting or turning the key in the lock cylinder; rough operation of the thumb latch on the inside of the door; and having the spring-loaded door bolt stick in one position or not operate smoothly.
If a handle is loose or doesn't turn easily, it's also time for replacement. Stick with the quality brand names and make sure to get hardened deadbolts. It's also a really good idea to have all of your exterior door locks keyed alike.
